Antares supports GreyLion Capital’s acquisition of Metal Era

Antares served as sole lead arranger and sole lender on USD65 million in senior secured credit facilities to support the acquisition of Metal Era by GreyLion Capital.

Founded in 1980 in Waukesha, WI, Metal Era is a manufacturer of high-performance roofing products focused on metal edge and ventilation solutions for commercial, institutional and industrial buildings.

“We appreciate Antares’ speed, flexibility and ability to speak for the full facility size,” says John McKee, Partner at GreyLion Capital. “They showed an impressive ability to commit and close in the midst of the fallout from Covid-19.”

“We are pleased to support GreyLion as they invest in Metal Era, a national leader in an industry with considerable growth potential,” says Michael Hynes, managing director with Antares. “With significant investment in cutting edge automation technology and a strong leadership team, we look forward to the continued growth of Metal Era.”
